Poetry by Our Secretary of Defense

A newsletter from Chicago Public Radio (WBEZ) alerted me to some interesting poetry of Donald Rumsfeld that had been featured on NPR. While my appreciation for poetry is sometimes comparable to that for flowers, I found this worth sharing.

Between a real dozen and a baker's dozen

Dylan had his two-month check-up at the doctor's office today. At 2 1/2 months old, he now weighs 12 lb., 6.5 oz. That explains why he is outgrowing some of his newborn outfits that are supposed to fit up to 12 lbs. He has grown another inch in length to reach 23 1/2". His head circumference is now 16.5", which puts him in the 75th percentile still. Dylan is now between the 50th and 75th percentile for his weight and length. Dylan did not enjoy the four shots that he received in his thighs (two shots each side), nor did I enjoy watching his reaction to them. Geoff got to console Dylan afterwards. It looked quite painful, but Dylan seems to be doing well now. Overall, it was a good check-up. It will be two months before Dylan's next well check-up.

While we haven't taken as many pictures in the weeks since I've returned to work, there are some that we posted last weekend. More photos that we took over the last two weekends will be posted soon... I hope. Keep checking back for more updates!
